The cat costume is a Halloween classic. But it’s also overdone. I’m not judging, that was literally what I did last year. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Aside from convenience, there are plenty of adorable animals in the animal kingdom that you can channel this Halloween. From a magical unicorn to an adorable giraffe, there are so many animal costumes you could try out this October 31.
Pastel unicorns are all the rage.
Mythical and magical, what’s not to love about dressing up as a unicorn? Essentially a onesie with a fancy hood, this costume is a great option for those who live in a cooler climate.
Squirrels are underrated.
Skip the vampire look this year and just be a bat.
Vampires? Skip this Halloween cliché and attend your costume party as a transformed vampire in bat form. It’s unique, clever, and no one will be expecting it. Plus, you can make this costume look chic or absolutely terrifying with a healthy amount of fake blood.
This unique dino costume will make you the talk of the town.
You heard it here first: Giant inflatable tyrannosaurus rex costumes are out and giant inflatable brontosaurus costumes are in. Give this loveable herbivore a chance – it might just win you the “Best Costume” award at your office party.
Giraffes are the cutest.
Giraffes are adorable and shouldn’t be excluded from Halloween fun. This giraffe costume is affordable, cute, and looks cosy. All the things you want out of a costume.
Right shark, who?
Bring back 2015 with a Left Shark-inspired costume at your costume party. For added atmosphere, play Katy Perry songs on repeat and dance until your heart is content.
Swedish Fish are animals … kind of.
You could dress up as Nemo or Dory, but what’s the fun in that? Consider dressing up as the famed candy Swedish Fish instead. It’s pretty clever and people will (hopefully) appreciate the ingenuity.
Bring in the dancing lobsters!
Fox and the Hound is a cute couple costume.
Here’s a free couple’s costume idea: portraying Disney’s fox and the hound at your next Halloween get-together. Trust me, no other couple will do this, so you’ll definitely stand out amongst the crowd of Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jeans.
People will fawn over this outfit.
Dressing up as a baby deer is a cute alternative to any cat costume. Dedicate yourself to a full face of makeup to complete this costume’s look.
